People living in Farnley and Wortley are being encouraged to make use of a mobile hub for their council, information and library needs.
The Mobile Hub vehicle is in Farnley and Wortley on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9.30am until 3.30pm.
It serves as a point of a contact for local residents who are looking for help with a variety of Council and Library services much like a regular community hub.
